Subject: great time...
this show was a great time for all the reasons recounted in here already but I have a hard time giving it 5 stars...things seemed just a little off to me but still good song selection and good playing throughout...Weir's part at the 13:30ish mark of the post UJB jam is beautiful...and the train horn...epic...I remember the stadium just going ape shit for the "Casey Jones" also...all in all very solid show but short of a 5 star effort...5 stars for fun for sure...

22 years ago tonight...should be noted that the tune played at the end of Space is called A Shenandoah Lullaby from the David & Jerry efforts...

Subject: the train d/s
Oh yea' this is definatly a fiver, how could we forget the train. I wasn't close enough to see on this night to see who blew the horn but I saw maybe 3 or 4 times they broke that out and at the spectrum I was close enough to see it was Bill holding/wearing this massive contraption and sort of moving his hands over circular openings to generate that earth shattering sound many people were ducking and dodgeing around looking for a safe place to get out of the way of the train they thought veered off front St and was barrelling down and about to bust thru the spectrum. I think my buddy bent some hardened steel railing he was holding on to. And the circular video screen was in sync with the train and it looked like an approaching train light & I was hearing fucking engines and horns and like train wheels on tracks sounds even sort of a train braking sound it was really really fucking intense. For me it is in the files of things you can't un see. Absolutely off the charts craziness. But this rfk one was really really tight too, this whole show rocked great memory. Knowing those two I don't doubt if Mickey didn't do a turn or two on that train maker. They damn sure were a seem less unit who gave everything they had over and over and over. Man, I have lots of d/s awesome memories this train is probably top of list. And Casey Jones was phenomenal. And I know what you are referring too about upper levels at rfk. They were shaking so fucking much that you could actually look across the stadium and see the movement with your own eyes at that great distance. I know they are supposed to you know move a little, like gently sway, but they were shaking vigorously and violently. What a show, a five all way around. Thanks for the ability to hear it again, and the ol' remembering the time feeling
Good karma to all G.D. family and many happy returns

Subject: Train Horn Revisited
I thought it was Billy who blew the horn, but I could be wrong. I do remember him totally cracking up. Fun show!

Subject: Train Horn
I was at this show on the field for the first set. The feel was good but so many people jumped the wall to get on the field (me included) that it was too much for the dose I took. For the second set I found a nice seat in the upper deck front row. When Micky blew the train horn coming out of space into Casey Jones I thought I was going over the rail. During that song the upper deck was bouncing up and down so much that I had to hold on. Great show! thanks to Charlie for letting me relive the moment with the crisp sound

Subject: Train Horn...
Thanks for the memories Charlie. The trains horns really freaked us out before Casey Jones, I was not the only one who was ducking and looking for the train.
